Double check my math please(never a strong suit), but I read the renewal as being approx 8 months late, therefore this episode is PD.

Under the 1976 Copyright Act it doesn't matter if it's 8 months off:

"For works copyrighted 1923-1950, for copyright renewal to be valid, renewal had to occur between the 27th and 28th anniversaries of the date that the initial copyright term began. For works copyrighted 1950-1963, renewal was also required for an additional term, but renewal had to occur during the calendar year following the year of the 27th anniversary of the start date of the first term."

I stand corrected! And thanks for the copyright info.
Another gotcha to file away for future use.
